Wow, our team is actually more stacked than I would've considered before trying to write up a roster. Plenty has happened since this past season. Landeskog has had a sophomore year, while especially the guys in Ottawa have developed alot. Plenty of players left out that I would've wanted in there. Alfredsson'll probably retire, so he isn't on the list. A couple of guys have played themselves into the roster this season, if they can keep it up, this will be very interesting about 9 months from now.
Sedin Sedin Eriksson
Zetterberg Bäckström Franzén
Steen Berglund Stålberg
Hagelin Zibanejad Landeskog
Hörnqvist, Silfverberg, Backlund
Not exactly written in stone, but these are the names to juggle around with as I see it. Eriksson and Bäckström showed great chemistry before, but it's not like the Sedins aren't skilled enough to play with Eriksson either. Some blazing speed and a hard worker brought into the lineup in the form of Hagelin, who'll be invaluable at big ice. Zibanejad has some speed as well. All lines know the two-way game very well and I see no real weaknesses. These guys can play against the best.
Strålman, Gunnarsson, Brodin, Murray, Larsson (soo many...)
The defense is stacked to the teeth. The thought is to let especially Karlsson, but also OEL roam a little bit, while Edler and Kronwall provide some defensive awareness. These pairings aren't exactly set in stone, they are all very good defensemen. Murray would've been a good choice on small ice, the choice is unclear on big ice.
Lundqvist Fasth Enroth
Lindbäck, Markström, Lehner
Not much to say here as Lundqvist is the obvious starting goaltender. I think Fasth has looked impressive enough to snag the spot as backup, while Enroth grabs the 3rd.
A very solid team on paper with great potential. If they can get their momentum going, this team can win any game against any team.
